Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara has signed a deal with a team in the Czech Republic, his agent told Comcast SportsNet New England.

The defenseman could be playing as soon as this weekend for the KHL's HC Lev Prague, which also boasts fellow NHL players Jiri Hudler and Jakub Voracek.

The 35-year-old had 12 goals and 40 assists in 79 games with the Bruins last season.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
